Summary

The new Aficio SP 5200S, SP 5210SF and SP 5210SR are Ricoh's first high-speed monochrome A4 MFPs. The machines are designed to offer end users a fully featured, departmental A4 device that can act as an alternative to A3 MFPs and digital copiers. The SP 5000 family supports workgroups of between 10 and 30 users and features the same controller and processor found in higher-end A3 devices. The SP 5200S is the base model, and it has a top speed of 47 ppm as well as standard print, copy and scan functionality with optional fax. The SP 5210SF has a 52-ppm output speed and comes with standard faxing functionality. The SP 5210SR sits at the top of the line and also supports print speeds up to 52 ppm. It features print, copy and scan functionality with fax available as an option. It ships with an internal stapling finisher that can staple up to 50 pages and stack up to 250 sheets.

The cartridges used in the new SP 5000 family are more similar to those found in printer cartridges than those found in Ricoh's A3 MFPs. The new integrated cartridges feature monocomponent toner and an imaging drum in one package. The SP 5000 machines ship with a starter cartridge that yields 6,000 pages, and each replacement cartridge is expected to deliver 25,000 pages. The machines also require a maintenance kit. Ricoh has aligned the price of the consumables with the market such that the SP 5000 family has operating costs that are competitive with other A4 MFPs.

One of the segments in the office equipment space that has been experiencing a lot of activity is the market for higher-end A4 machines. Copier and printer manufacturers alike have released a lot of machines for this market over the past couple of years. Ricoh’s new A4 MFPs will feel pressure from HP’s widely successful LaserJet Enterprise M4345 series and its successor, the LaserJet M4555 series, which came out last year. Other competitive machines in the category include Canon’s imageRUNNER 1750 and 1750iF; Lexmark’s X652, X654, X656 and X658 families; Samsung’s SCX-6545N and SCX-6555N; Sharp’s MX-B402; and the Xerox WorkCentre 4250 and 4260 lines.
